For media educator

Moore’s sharp, simplified style makes the extensive film easy to follow. On the other hand, the fast rhythm makes sure that even the most lively viewer is not likely to get bored. The sections that describe the situation in the USA and especially the police and prison management are in some places distressing even for an adult viewer: some of the documentary footage is brutal.

The part of the film about Finland makes the demarcation and selection involved in scripting a documentary interestingly visible, although not on purpose. In a familiar subject, demarcation and simplification become easier to notice, and the viewer can relate the other subjects of the film to this realization. (Source: Media-avain)
